In reply to: hello

About warranties... its really hard to find one that is extensive enough to be justified & cheap enough to be reasonable.
Tell me you went to some stores & actually checked out the unit you want to get in person. Happy I dunno... perhaps the people in this forum can't exercise enough patience once they actually see it in person at the stores. There is also that added security of transporting it back home yourself.
